1 ½lbrusset potatoes, cut into fries - see notes
4tablespoonsfinely chopped fresh dill, divided
Lemon Dill Yogurt Sauce
¼ cupGreek yogurt
1tablespoonlemon juice, freshly squeezed is best
1tablespoonfinely chopped dill
1smallgarlic clove, finely minced
1pinchsea salt, more to taste
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes, olive oil, 2 tablespoons of the dill, and salt.
1 ½ lb russet potatoes, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ½ teaspoon sea salt
Divide the fries between the two prepared baking sheets. (Don't try to cram them all on one baking sheet or they won't crisp.) Bake for 35 minutes, switching the racks that the baking sheets are on halfway through.
While the fries are baking, mix the lemon dill sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
Once the fries are golden, soft on the inside, and slightly crispy on the outside, remove them from the oven and sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of dill over top. Serve the fries with the lemon dill sauce on the side.
Scrub the potatoes; There's no need to peel them. Then cut the potatoes into ½ inch sticks. For crispier fries, you can rinse the cut potatoes until cold water a few times then dry them using a salad spinner.
